so i went to a pinsky reading and one thing he talked about was writing a poem about the next thing you touch.
this led to things like pen, keyboard, other hand, etc.


The Proposed Challenge is to write a poem on something you previously thought pedantic, pedestrian, quotidienne, unpoetic, soulless (i think it is one l but two of them make it symetric which i like); you get the idea.

something like toilet bowl, or tube of toothache killer, or hairbrush.

below is one of mine as an example: some you you may have seen it before.

----------

her curves call to my loins and heart all at once
I drink her in as the light from her eyes illuminates the night,
she turns smoothly as we climb higher,
her skin has a soft sheen in the moonlight,
with a throaty roar I drive her harder,
faster, and she purrs under me;

my one,

my only,

my '69 stingray vette;
if she were a woman, I would marry her.

I don't believe you want to read my 'Ode to a Zit'! Perhaps I can come up with something for this challenge.

With fingers on keys
I write this verse
Iíve done much better
And done much worse

Slightly curved
My keyboard sits
Waiting for my
few little hits

A couple of clicks
A space bar or two
And I may have
A poem for you

My muse is gone
Since I donít know when
Too bad I canít find it
By pressing ĎF tení

It would be so simple
To write by stroke of key
But then my keyboard
Would be the author not me
